DWLV - PowerShares DWA Momentum & Low Volatility Rotation Portfolio

Equity - International and Global Equity

Product Details

The PowerShares DWA Momentum & Low Volatility Rotation Portfolio (the "Fund") is based on the Dorsey Wright® Multi-Factor Global Equity Index (Index). The Fund generally will invest in at least 90% of its total assets in securities that comprise the Index. The Fund is a "fund of funds," meaning that it invests its assets in the shares of other exchange-traded funds, rather than in securities of individual companies. The Index is designed to gain exposure to US or international equity markets through the universe of up to eight PowerShares momentum or low volatility ETFs, and may also hold up to 100% cash position (via 1- to 6-month US Treasury Bills) when equity securities as a whole are out of favor. The Fund and the Index are evaluated monthly for potential rebalance and reconstitution.

Market returns are based on the midpoint of the bid/ask spread at 4 p.m. ET and do not represent the returns an investor would receive if shares were traded at other times. Performance data quoted represents past performance, which is not a guarantee of future results. Investment returns and principal value will fluctuate, and shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be higher or lower than performance data quoted. After-tax returns reflect the highest federal income tax rate but exclude state and local taxes. Fund performance reflects applicable fee waivers, absent which, performance data quoted would have been lower. After Tax Held and After Tax Sold are based on NAV. Returns less than one year are cumulative.

Shareholders may pay more than net asset value when they buy Fund shares and receive less than net asset value when they sell those shares, because shares are bought and sold at current market prices. Performance data quoted represents past performance, which is not a guarantee of future results.

 Risk & Other Information

The MSCI All Country World Index measures the combined performance of large- and mid-capitalization equities from developed and emerging market countries.

Typically, security classifications used in calculating allocation tables are as of the last trading day of the previous month.

There are risks involved with investing in ETFs, including possible loss of money. Shares are not actively managed and are subject to risks similar to those of stocks, including those regarding short selling and margin maintenance requirements. Ordinary brokerage commissions apply. The Fund's return may not match the return of the Underlying Index. The Fund is subject to certain other risks. Please see the current prospectus for more information regarding the risk associated with an investment in the Fund.

Momentum style of investing is subject to the risk that the securities may be more volatile than the market as a whole or returns on securities that have previously exhibited price momentum are less than returns on other styles of investing.

Investments focused in a particular industry or sector are subject to greater risk, and are more greatly impacted by market volatility, than more diversified investments.

The Fund is non-diversified and may experience greater volatility than a more diversified investment.

There is no assurance that the Fund will provide low volatility.

The risks of investing in securities of foreign issuers, including emerging market issuers, can include fluctuations in foreign currencies, political and economic instability, and foreign taxation issues.

The Fund is subject to the risks of the underlying funds. Market fluctuations may change the target weightings in the underlying funds and certain factors may cause the Fund to withdraw its investments therein at a disadvantageous time.

Obligations issued by US Government agencies and instrumentalities may receive varying levels of support from the government, which could affect the fund's ability to recover should they default.

Interest rate risk refers to the risk that bond prices generally fall as interest rates rise and vice versa.

An issuer may be unable to meet interest and/or principal payments, thereby causing its instruments to decrease in value and lowering the issuer's credit rating.

The Fund will indirectly pay a proportional share of the expenses of the underlying ETFs in which it invests (including operating expenses and management fees), in addition to the fees and expenses it already will pay to the Adviser.

Stocks of small and mid-sized companies tend to be more vulnerable to adverse developments, may be more volatile, and may be illiquid or restricted as to resale.

There is no relationship between Dorsey, Wright & Associates, LLC ("Dorsey Wright") and PowerShares by Invesco ("PowerShares") other than a license by Dorsey Wright to PowerShares of certain Dorsey Wright trademarks, tradenames, investment models, and indexes (the "DWA IP"). DWA IP has been created and developed by Dorsey Wright without regard to and independently of PowerShares, and/or any prospective investor. The licensing of any DWA IP is not an offer to purchase or sell, or a solicitation of an offer to buy any securities. A determination that any portion of an investor's portfolio should be devoted to any ETF product developed by PowerShares or investment model developed by Dorsey Wright is a determination made solely by the investment advisor serving the investor or the investor himself, not Dorsey Wright.

Beta is a measure of risk representing how a security is expected to respond to general market movements. Smart Beta represents an alternative and selection index based methodology that seeks to outperform a benchmark or reduce portfolio risk, or both. Smart beta funds may underperform cap-weighted benchmarks and increase portfolio risk.
